Announcement on Postponement of China International Hardware Show 2021

Dear Exhibitors, Visitors and Industry Colleagues,

In view of the recent wide fluctuation of the epidemic nationwide and abroad, and in order to implement the national epidemic prevention and control work to ensure the health and safety of exhibitors, purchasers and professional visitors, China National Hardware Association and Koelnmesse have prudently decided to postpone the China International Hardware Show 2021 (CIHS 2021) from 16-18 December 2021 to 21-23 September 2022. The event will still be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).

Through the concerted efforts of both organising parties and with the strong support of industry associations, media partners, exhibitors and visitors at home and abroad, CIHS will continue working towards bringing quality brands and suppliers together from all over the world and integrating premium global business resources with supporting programmes of the exhibition to establish the one-stop procurement platform for the best benefit for all after recovering from the outbreak.

We would like to express our gratitude to all exhibitors, visitors and partners for your long-term understanding and support, and we apologise for the inconvenience caused by the rescheduling of the event. The organising team will continuously provide the best follow-up services for all. We look forward to welcoming hardware trade professionals around the globe to Shanghai, China, in the coming year. 

For further information about CIHS 2022, please refer to our official website www.hardwareshow-china.com in the following weeks.

Yours sincerely,

China National Hardware Association Koelnmesse (Beijing) Co., Ltd.
